The ultimate guide on how to kick and boot people offline on PS4 and Xbox. A few players or even observers would despise such acts, but we as Gamers, are obsessed on winning, upgrading our weapons, gear, unlocking mesmerizing character cosmetics and skins. Sometimes we will do everything in our power for us to achieve our goal, thus even being unethical won’t even cross our minds.
While a lot of people will be opposed to these sort of actions, we have created the ultimate gamer’s guide on kicking and booting people offline to use for your advantage and/or protect your self from such attacks.
First off, lets dive a bit deeper on how we can achieve such an act and answer a few of your questions.
Kick Players and Boot People Offline on PS4/Xbox
1. Obtain the IP Address of the gamer/player
Think of your IP address, like your home address. It’s unique and you know who lives there. With an IP address the same principles apply, your ISP distributing a public IP address to your router and thus your router assigns local IP addresses to your devices within your home (PC, PS4, Mobile device, XBOX etc).
Because we play games online, every bodies public IP addresses needs to connect to that hosting server (Fortnite server, GTA server etc) Upon connecting on the server we can intercept, scan and retrieve packets which will resolve into IP addresses from fellow players/gamer’s.

2. Sign up for a Booter service
A Booter is essentially a DOS attack. And a Denial of service is typically accomplished by flooding the targeted machine or resource with superfluous requests in an attempt to overload systems and prevent some or all legitimate requests from being fulfilled
Using our home/house analogy again. Think of a Booter service as having 100 people in a 1 room apartment/flat. With that amount of people you will basically be forced to leave or be pushed around. Either way, both seems to be unpleasant and your router feels the same. The Booter service will send so many packets that it will be forced to reboot or with hold sending any packets throughout your home network. (think of brain freeze)
Q: What Booter should I use
A: From our experience we have found Stressthem to be the most reliable and they come with a bitcoin payment system for bonus security. We also have our own compiled list of free Booters and tools you can use. Read more about it here.
3. Start kicking and booting people offline
It’s time to win and cause chaos! You have the gamer’s IP address and selected a Booter. Insert the IP address and start launching your attack. Wait 10 seconds and you will be victorious!
Q: I’m using Stressthem, what information should I type in
A: At their Booter panel, you can fill in the IP address, port, duration of attack and which method you want to use. See below screenshot on our config.
How to block booter attacks on PS4/Xbox and Protect myself
As you can see from the above steps on how we boot people offline, the most important information an attacker needed, was your IP address. Blocking such attacks, we only need to fool the gamer/players that want to boot you offline. In doing so, they will boot a wrong IP address and your network won’t be saturated.
Our recommendation is to connect your PS4 or Xbox to a VPN before you play online. Get our limited 35% discount from Express VPN below and make sure you will never be booted offline again!
